Jammu: Students protest for more seats in Cluster University
Press Trust of India|Sep 29, 2021
NEW DELHI: The Jammu and Kashmir students association urged Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha and Cluster University Srinagar Vice Chancellor Professor Qayyum Husain to conduct the fifth-semester supplementary exam for Cluster University students. The students association has demanded to hold the pending supplementary examination of 2019 batch students who have a backlog and those who couldn’t appear in the exam due to COVID-19 infection.
The exam was held in February last year. Despite the university's promise, the supplementary examination was not conducted. It can result in academic loss for students who want to apply for master's degrees and other academic degrees if the fifth semester supplementary examination is delayed.
Munawar Mehraj, Vice President of the Jammu and Kashmir students association, requested authorities to consider this request on humanitarian grounds, keeping in view the precious career of students and the hardships and difficulties students gone through because of outbreak of lethal covid-19 pandemic.
"We request the honorable Lieutenant Governor and the Vice Chancellor, Cluster University to conduct a supplementary examination of fifth-semester (Batch 2019) for students of cluster University who missed it last year," he added.
The university follows a semester scheme, where the exam is conducted once in six months. He added that the university should consider the request of conducting examination of fifth-semester supplementary exam like previous year to save the precious time of students otherwise they will lose their precious academic year and further delay their future studies and career prospects.
